FEAR OF BRITISH
SHIP IN PORT HERE
Reported Delay in Sailing of
Sommerstad Said to Be
Due to Presence of Essex
Off Delaware Capes.
Mystery surrounding tho delay In the
sailing from this port of tho Norwegian
steamship Sommerstad, which cleared
a week ago, has nroused much specula
tion In shipping circles. The vessel Is
heavily ladon with coal nnd general car
go usually rockoncd ns ship's supplies.
According to her clearance papers, she
is ostensibly scheduled to sail for Cadiz,
Spain. Tho cause of delay was not ex
plained by Captain Axelscn, master of
the vessel, or Its agent, Wllllnm .1. Grand
fleld. Men supposed to know tho port's busi
ness thoroughly when asked for an ex
planation 'merely shrugged their shoul

havoc with British and French com
merce In the Caribbean Sea.
It has been charged- that these cruisers,
which have never put Into any port
since war was declared for a renewal of
tholr supplies, have been receiving car
goes nt Bea which have been shipped
from this port. An investigation Into
theso charges develop a possibility of
tholr truth, as four Norwegian steam
ships havo sailed from this port within
the past fow weeks carrying cargoes
consisting of canned goods, salt bcof, salt
pork, bacon, hnm, rice, sugar, cheese,
ordinarily accepted as ship's stores In
shipping business. In addition to these
they carried several thousand tons of bi
The first vessel to leave was the Nor
wegian steamship Ncpos, Captain Nell

rovia, Libera and Tenerlfte, for orders.
iicr cargo was valued at J22.107.B2. She
was followed on September 2 by the John
I.udwlg Mowhlnckle, with a similar car

$23,339.91. On September 8 the Norwegian
steamship Unlta sailed for Cadiz. Spain,

In tho charges that vessels leaving this

fabulous sums are being paid the own

vessels are Instructed to go to a certain
position at sea and there await tho ar

been apprised by wireless of the vessel's
The Knrlsruho nnd the Dresden are
both light, speedy cruisers. They confine
their efforts to capturing and sinking

factional tights In all parts of the Btnto
will bo determined, after which tho Ilo-
publlcans, Democrats and Progressives
will settle down lo the work of trying to
elect their respective candidates In the
fall election. Tho Bull Mooters ns a party
nro virtually eliminated In New Jersey
this fall. In I'nesalc and Ocean Counties
they have combined with tho Democrats,
which fact nlono Is taken to mean tho
death knoll of tho noosevcltlans as n
party of weight. The fights within tho
Democratic and nepubllcan ranks, how
ever, nro numerous, nnd some of thorn
In the primary light In HudBon tho
voters will bo called upon to decldo which
of two brands of Wilson Democracy they
want. For tho time being also, at least,
will bo settled tho question of the su
premacy In the country between tho
factions of Navnl OfTlcpr H. Otto Wltt
penn on one skip nnd Governor Fielder on
tho other. Wlttponn has a complete
county and congressional ticket In tho
flold, under tho standard of "Progressive
Democracy" nnd tho ticket agnlnEt him
Is tho "nntl-boss" ticket. Governor
Kleldor, who Is from Hudson, Is not tak
ing an active interest In tho pro-primary
fight, but It Is generally bellcvod that ho
Is staking his Interests on tho legislative
iicKot in tne Held which is against Wltt
penn. FinST CONGRESS DISTRICT.
In the First Congressional District, con
sisting of Camden, Gloucester nnd Salem
Counties, Representative "William J.
Browning, the Republican incumbont and
candidate, has no opposition within his
own ranks.- He carried tho district In
1912 undor tho most unfavorable party
conditions and he Is expected to win tho
election with small effort. Camden County
from a Republican standpoint Is In good
shape, more than 6000 nnmes having been
placed on Senator William T. Read's pe
tition. Sonator Read, Republican, Is run
ning ror r-e-oiccllon In that county to the
Stnto Senato and ho is belloved to have
every chance for success. H. Graham
Bleakley Is tho Democratic scnntorlnl can
didate for tho nomination, and B. II. Red
field, tho Bull Moose aspirant.
Sheriff Joseph E. Nowrey, Democrat,
Is ono 'of tho candidates for the Demo
cratic congressional nomination In tho
First District, nnd Harry C. Richmond Is
aiiothor Democratic candidate. Nowrey, It
In doclared, will get the solid Democratic
vote, eliminating Richmond almost en
tirely. George H. Hlgglns Is running an
a fr-ogressivc-Hoosovelt candidate, nnd
George D. Chcnowlth as an Indopendent
Progressivo candidate, but their voto It Is
believed will be scattering.
In tho Camden County Republican con
test for tho Assembly there are five can
didates for thothree places on the ticket.
These candidates nro Assemblyman John
B. Kates nnd Gnrfleld Panconst, and John
H. Fort. Charles Wolverton and Dean 9.
Prcssey. The Democratic candidates nre
Herbert W. Royal. Ralph W. Wescott
and David G. McGenr. The Progressive
Assembly ticket consists of Louis B.
Laduo, Edmond West and Arthur Lltlet.
Senator George W. F. Gnunt. Repub
lican, from Gloucester County, who Is
seeking re-election to the State Senate,
has no opposition In the prlmnrles. He
is prominently Identified with tho
Grangers of the Stnto nnd hns never yet
been beaten In nolltlcs.
Salem County Republicans are reported
to be In good shnpo. The Democrats there
are having a bitter fight over tho re
nomlnatlon of Senator Isaac S. Smlck.
He Is being strongly opposed by the Rev.
E. J. Gwynn, a Democrat, who Is seeking
senatorial honors. Collins B. Allen, tho
Republican candidate, has no opposition
In tho primaries. Chalkley Haines Is the
IN THE SECOND DISTRICT.
In the Second Congressional District
the fight Is very bitter In the Republican
ranks. It Is concentrated In Atlantic
County, nlthough Burlington. Cape May
and Cumberland, the other counties of the
district, have been drawn Into It.
The four Republican candidates In tho
field for tho nomination In tho Second
Congressional District nre Assemblyman
Emerson I.. Richards, Isaac W. Bach
arach. ex-Senator Griffith W Lewis and
Senator Blanchard II. AVhltc. The war.
particularly between Richards and Dach
arach, is to tho knife.
It is not Unlikely that Bacharnch rrlay
get the nomination under the present pri
mary tactics, but Republican leaders, or
at least some of them, think that the
nomination of White or Iswls would
probably be the best thing for the party.
The Democrats have no fight In their
ranks as fnr ns tho congressional nomi
nation Is concerned In the Second District,
Representative J, Thompson Baker Is
their candidate for renomlnatlon. The
Progressives, whose standard bearer Is
William H. Bright, aro showing possibly
more vitality In that section, relatively
speaking, than elsewhere In the State.
In Atlantic County all other Issues
are dwarfed In the congressional bnltle
nnd the congressional candidates and
their friends nre at each others' throats,
forgetting atmost entirely In the Intensity
of their light the Republican party. Carl
ton Godfrey and II. E. Whitman, Repub
licans, who are running for the Assembly,
will bo elected to that body. The Dem
ocratic candidates for the Assembly nom
ination are Richard P. Bloom, John C.
Mngee and Wllllnm Carlton.
In Cumberland County there Is n lively
fight on for fihcrlff In both prlmnrles,
with general good nature on the Repub
lican sldo and some factional feeling
among the Democrats. Tho Cumberland
County Democracy Is divided Into the
Ackley nnd antl-Ackley factions. Sena
tor John A. Ackley, Democrat, will serve
until 1917, but the faction against him
Is growing. It Is reported. The Assembly
candidates for tho Republican nomlnn
tlon In this county are It. TV. Sheppard
and Arthur S. Crnlg, who are opposing
ench other. On tho Democratic sldo the
opposing candidates are L. W, Errlckson,
Walter P. Glaspcy and David IT. Johnson.
There Is qulto a fight over county
offices In Burlington County. Assembly,
mnn Rohert Peacock, Republican, Is un
opposed In tho primaries. His Democratlo
opponent will bo TV. D. Cowperthwalt,
nnd Gcorgo W. Gllllnghnm will run ns a

In tho Third Congressional District, con
sisting of Monmouth, Middlesex and"
Ocean Counties, Representative Thomas
J. Scully will be renominated by the Dem
ocrats. The Republicans seemed unable
to get a Btrong candidate against him.
Finally TV, Burtls Havens, of Ocean
County, was Induced to enter tho contest,
but tho Business Men's League, of Asbury
Pnrk, thought the nomination of Hetrlck,
a Progressive, advisable, nnd word has
been received here of Hnveno' withdrawal
In favor of Hetrlck.
There Is a bitter fight on In Monmouth
County among the Democrats over tho
senatorial nomination. Henry E. Acker
son, Jr., backed by Secretary of Stats
Crater and tho Wilson Democrats, Is be
ing strongly opposed by Thomas P. Fay,
of Long Branch, who Is running ns an
nntl-Wllson, nntl-Crater cnndldnte. Fay
claims that hn has been pledged enough
support to get tho nomination. Tho Re
publican candidate In Monmouth Is T.
Frank Appleby, who has no opposition
for the nomination. Joseph G. Coleman
is the Progressive senatorial candidate.
Tho Assembly situation In Monmouth
presents no unusual feature?.
In Ocean County the Democratic Assem
bly candidate, .Tnmes E. Conloy, Is also
the Bull Mooso candidate for the nom
ination, the Democrats and Progressives
having combined In that county. Assem
blyman David G. Conrad. Republlcap,
will be renominated to the Assembly.
There are four Republican and five Dem
ocratic candidates for the three places on
the Middlesex County Assembly ticket.
Four Republicans, two Democrats and
a Progressive are seeking the congres.
nlonal nominations In the Fourth District,
comprising Mercer, Hunterdon nnd Som
erset Counties. The Republican organiza
tion Is behind ox-Senator E. C. Hutchln.
son, It Is said, but he will be given a
hard race by William E. Blackman, a
young lawyer of this city.
Hutchinson, It Is declared, will lose
many votes because ho previously lined
up with the Bull Moose. William Dela
roche Anderson, of Somorvllle. and Fred
erick A. Pope, of this city, nre making
a fight for the Republican congressional
nomination, but It Is likely that tho nom
ination will go to either Hutchinson or
Blackman. Tho Democratic candidate Is
Representative Allan B. Walsh, who Is
standing on Wilson's principles to win
htm ro-olcctlon. He is opposed In the
prlmnrles by Charles J. Drake, whose
candidacy Is not regarded seriously. J.
Wlggnns Thorn, a Progressive, will be
LIVELY CONTEST IN MERCER.
For the Mercor Assembly Republican
ticket with three places, there are nine
candidates, and on tho Democratic sldo
there are five. The fighting on both sides
Is lively, but friendly. Thero Is consid
erable bitterness, however, among both
Democrats and Republicans over tho
Sheriff's contest. Tho Republicans have
ten candidates In the field nnd the Demo
crats two. There Is also a ProgressUc.
J. Warren Fleming and Asscmhlyman
Hervey -S. Moore, of the Republicans,
seem to be leading, while J. G. Coleman,
a Trenton undertaker, will probably get
